Jamaica 2-0 Guatemala (CONCACAF Gold Cup) – Match Highlights


Jamaica qualified for the quarter-finals of the Gold Cup after a brace from Demar Phillips gave the Reggae Boyz a 2-0 win over Guatemala.

With two wins out of two, the Caribbean side, coached by former player Theodore Whitmore, have made great strides since their group stage elimination two years ago.

Playing with confidence in midfield and pace down the flanks, Jamaica were on top for most of the first half but Guatemala came close to an opener just before the break with a strike from Carlos Ruiz that flashed just wide.

But the breakthrough came in the 65th minute when Phillips latched on to a neat ball over the top from Keammar Daley in the 65th minute, bursting into the box on the left and firing into the bottom corner.
